do you mean off the system or are you trying to free up memory on your hard if so C: local disk and click disk clean up then one you have done that check all the boxes and click on ok then yes to confirm and that will free up the unsessery files on your computer REMEMBER dont just delete files and folders off your computer for there are a lot that if you do delete them you notebook will no longer run so do it the correct way do it though the wizard

SPECIAL NOTE
Do NOT delete the $hf_mig$ folder anyway!

leroy scott, You can also free up some disk space by right clicking My Computer, under the System Restore tab>Disk Space Usage: move the slider to the center which should still give you an ample number of System Restore Points, click Apply/OK.

The only memory on your hard drive is the cache built into it.

Hard drives have Storage Space. I don't mean to nitpick but folks giving out help should be correct with terminology.

Storage and memory are similar but not interchangeable.

How would any program know what you consider to be useless files? To carry that question further I would state that there are no useless files. Only files you don't think you need at the moment.

I suggest you form some sort of system to organize your files so they can be easily accessed. Take my word for it, sooner or later you will have a need for most stuff on your drive. If you want to archive files that you consider clutter then burn them to CDR or DVDR. You can fit a lot of stuff on one disk.
